I have the Koolie Minnow 90 in Hollow Mullet color. That works well, goes a bit deeper than the MirroLure 17MR and is as effective. I have been fishing the Stick Shadd 90, floating version in Amber and Hollow Mullet. It can be worked a lot of ways and it's biggest catch so far is a 37" red. I caught one 25 1/2 trout on the smaller Bonga Minnow but the thing is like throwing a log so I don't use it much. The minnow and the shadd are moving up on my go to list. I like them. I think the hooks, while sharp, are a little weak.
